Use a 12 volt test light & probe wires in harness from original connection, on feed side .Find a wire that only has power when you turn the key on. That's the one you'll connect that wire to.

Change out the factory stero for an aftermarket head unit


Once you remove the screws to the console panel and remove console, you will see 4 scews that hold the stereo in tact, remove them, pull stereo, disconnect wiring harness and antennae. If you need a wiring diagram you can go to 12volt dot com or installer dot come. I suggest using the quick connect wiring harness adapter

Im installing an aftermarket stereo in my 2002 Grand Am.. I bought an expensive harness and its not working.. I have the radio working, but the ignition wire from the radio is hooked up to battery...


This vehicle does not have a switched power suppy in the factory harness. The orange wire in the car harness is a constant 12 volts.
To resolve connect the 12 volt power supply from the head unit to a switched circut at the fuse block and this will resolve your problem.

Need to know the wires to install a deck for 97


Red is power to from ignition to cd deck
Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory.
Black is ground
Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier.
I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to installer.com to find which wires on the car are for what.

Installing after market stereo


Dave,

You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC
